Untappd Is Not A Race: Enjoy The Beer Experience

August 2, 2015 8

WHOOMP THERE IT IS! My 1,000th unique brew check-in using the Untappd app: Burlington Beer Co.’s Strawberry Whale Cake. I like celebrating just about anything. Especially craft beer related happenings like: Untappd milestones, special beer releases, bottle shares or finding a whale or unicorn beer during beercations. So when my 1,000 check-in was imminent, I started to reflect on the Read More

Don’t Tell Me How to Rate My Beer!

December 6, 2014 7

As of late, I’ve been hearing a lot of folks who use the Untappd app say they rarely rate or comment on the beers they check-in because they’re afraid of how the brewery might react if they don’t give a favorable review. And, that makes me sad. Sad that they feel intimated by brewers and breweries. Sad that they are Read More

Just the Sip

November 14, 2014 11

So, I hit 2000 unique Untappd check-ins. Above, you see me with my 2000th unique beer, Terrapin HI-5. That was about a month ago, so I’m actually closer to 2050 at this point, but at any rate it happened. With this exciting occasion, I received a few questions about how many of these were just sips vs samples vs pints. I Read More

July 15, 2014 0

It was my fourth and last day to hunt hard to acquire beers during my Vermont Beer Trail Vacation. So far, I was quite fortunate to find The Alchemist’s Heady Topper. I braved the lines at Hill Farmstead for some world class IPAs. I discovered Stowe Cider. What more could a craft beer loving gal ask for? “The Holy Grail Read More

More Than Just a Check-In

November 9, 2013 4

UnTappd has truly changed the way we drink beer, hasn’t it? It’s become far more social (as if beer really needed to be MORE social), and it has actually made a game out of drinking beer. Now we’ve all played beer drinking games before, but this is something totally different. It’s not a game that encourages you to get drunk, Read More

Checking Out of Checking In

I love October. How could a girl who dresses like a shark and batman on a regular basis not like the holiday where it encourages others to dress up too? And, it’s no secret that I also love beer. At the beginning of this month I had all sorts of grand plans to write about my pumpkin beer taste off, Oktoberfest, the best Read More
